I'm Taking the Fifth, Too

I was going to post, but fuck it --
  • I'm going to take the Fifth, too.
  • I'm going to torture with impunity and incarcerate any kangaroo-skinner I damn well please without charges for five years or more if I want to. I'm gonna insist anyone in my camp can lie whenever they want, and call that a "reasonable offer" endlessly. I'm gonna stand by Alberto and dis Democrat (heh, heh, "Democrat") Presidential candidates whose wives have cancer while I carry on my steadfast support for the nation's first cyborg Vice Prez, without seeing a hint of irony in that.





    Ah, shit, I can't do any of that.

    Actually, I'm gonna go finish (sigh) our taxes.

    Have a great Tuesday, fellow peons.

    Every single person in that filthy, illegal administration should be put on trial.

    A totally off-topic post (but one for which I hope ya'll will deem appropriate).

    I consider you one of the foremost minds and voices speaking intellegently about horror in all it's forms. Now there is a movement afoot to try and remove a billboard for the film Captivity, deeming it torture porn. Even Joss Whedon, who I greatly respect, is against the billboard and is calling it torture porn. They are apparently calling for the film to be denied a rating to keep it from being shown, at least that what I gather from their website, Remove The Rating:

    You can read Joss's letter in support of censorship here:

    And you can see the controversial billboard here:

    As I recall, you wrote passionately in favor of modern horror torture film, and how it was both making people uncomfortable and confronting America with it's shameful history of political torture, and about the importance of the genre. I'd love to know if you too agree that the board should be removed, or if you think that censorship is again wrong in this case.

    Personally, I think that the billboard is not even as bad as many I've seen for things like Saw or The Hills Have Eyes 2, so it seems that this billboard is being reacted to strongly without looking at the fact that it's in keeping with many contemporary horror posters. And I wonder if the advocates of removing this film poster would have a problem with something like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre original poster... it seems like the posters are doing their job, getting people aware of a new horror film, so isn't this just as bad as banning a book for content, or a film or comic?

    Thanks for considering this...

    Will do -- when I have time this weekend.

    It's all bullshit, though, to my mind. Focusing ire on posters instead of the genuine horrors we're inflicting is the smokescreen, the game, the bullshit. More later -- no time today or tomorrow!

    Hey, Anonymous -- it's unlikely you'll see this, but I've at least SEEN the film CAPTIVITY, and will be posting a comment on it this weekend on MYRANT. Just a heads up...
